GRP Solutions for Maintenance Areas & Traincare Depots
Lightweight, Durable & Corrosion Resistant
A High Strength and Low Cost Fibreglass Solution for the Rail Industry
Reliability is the key to running a successful railway, and ensuring that equipment is correctly maintained is key in making sure that a rail system is as aafe as possible. Repair and maintenance facilities used to keep the equipment in good condition should run as efficiently as possible, and the use of composite materials that last longer than traditional products, or eliminate downtime altogether, can lead to significant cost savings for rail systems. There are so many advantages to fibreglass (GRP) over traditional materials used in maintenance areas; GRP has a high strength to weight ratio, is corrosion and impact resistant, offers superb anti slip properties, and is simple to manoeuvre and clean.
Traincare depots are responsible for all maintenance, including cleaning, inspecting, and repairing of trains and rolling stock, to ensure safe travel for passengers. Applications for Dura Composites’ products within traincare depots include GRP walkways, trench and duct covers, access gratings, ladders, refuge platforms, handrails and structures. We have a wealth of experience in the rail sector and our market-leading GRP products give Civil Engineering and Infrastructure clients the confidence to design safe and innovative composite rail solutions which overcome the limitations of traditional materials such as wood, steel and concrete.
